Adyen’s capital markets day was much anticipated. In fact, while the broader industry accumulates news of potential disruption stemming from BigTech, the CMD was a timely reminder of what Adyen is about and the future roadmap.
Developing in embedded finance is hardly ground-breaking in our view and much will depend on execution where we expect Adyen to deliver.

Results come and go and all look similar. Adyen is once again beating consensus expectations as management shows a sassy control over its business. Despite our recommendation, we believe that, with the visibility over cash flows and the maintained super-efficient business model, the firm is well on its way to recover its previous valuation levels, unless there is a new Central Banks’ coup.
As we previously anticipated, Adyen is now more exposed to North America than any other continent, in terms of gross revenues, highlighting the high tension in the market when comparing net revenues. This implies a lot however, as according to its H1 release, nothing seems to be a drag on its outstanding growth while the world seems very much bonded with its online-shopping habits.
Adyen has announced on Tuesday that the US Federal Reserve had approved its banking license application.
While the obtaining the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s approval (OCC) remains outstanding, a “formality” as per our industry discussions, the announcement reveals a wrong assumption on our part. We had overstated the BIN-sponsor cost effect, which turns out to reassert -more than ever- our opinion regarding the company’s valuation.
Adyen is piling up money in its balance sheet with no plans to spend it.
This is questionable behaviour for which we believe the answer may be that the company is building up some capital to reach the requirement for a US banking licence. However, time is ticking and Adyen needs to keep up with the pace of its American peers.
Raising further equity would be the key.
Adyen is releasing FY top-line growth (+28%) which is consistent with the market’s expectations (+1%), sustained by high growth in the US now almost equally weighing with Europe’s gross revenues.
The company also disclosed a much higher than expected FY EBITDA margin (61.5% vs 55.5%) and has set its long-term target to more than 65%... 1,000bp higher than the previous 55% target.
Adyen has developed a best-in-class payment software for merchants with unique growth prospects. It’s out of this world valuation has benefitted from the Covid-19 wave(s), Central Banks’ liquidity plans and a self-feeding buy loop (ETF, indices). Even heroic growth assumptions cannot match the recent valuations.

Having updated in April that FY22 revenues and operating profits were expected to be in line with consensus, Eckoh today updates that operating profits grew strongly in the period and will now be ahead of consensus.

This de-risks our FY23 forecasts, where we are looking for AOP of £7.7m. We are forecasting FY23 AOP of £5.9m from the existing business, up f
